Towards the end of his NFL career, veteran quarterback Carson Palmer was spending countless hours each day off the field working on his body—either getting it prepared to play in a game or recovering after one. His daily routine included lifting in the weight room, doing footwork, rehabilitation, stretching and working with the chiropractor.

After retiring at the age of 38 in January 2018, the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback longed for a much-needed break from the physical grind after 15 seasons in the league with the Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals that also included a number of surgeries; he broke his arm in 2017 and tore his ACL in 2006 and 2014. Palmer also suffered from chronic neck and back pain.

He instead favored getting his physical activity outside rather in the weight room, and being active with his four children. It wasn’t until recently while being instructed to remain at home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic when his desire to lift returned.

“I had taken some time off then all of a sudden this virus hit and for some reason it recharged me to lift again,” Palmer, 40, said. “My body started feeling good and it really got me excited to lift again. I look forward to getting up every day and doing it now.”

Palmer relies on CBD to combat his aches and pains each day; he partnered with performance-based CBD sports cream Level Select in late 2019. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the hundreds of compounds that comprise cannabis. CBD, unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), does not give users a “high” feeling, but some studies have indicated it can provide relief for chronic pain, arthritis and even epilepsy, with more research needed.

While his playing days are a thing of the past, Palmer, who won the 2002 Heisman Trophy at USC, is urging all athletes to take advantage of this enforced stoppage in sports as a result of the pandemic. All four of the major North American sports leagues (MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS) that should be in the middle of seasons are currently suspended indefinitely.

“From an NFL standpoint, all these guys are normally getting ready to pack up and head back to their cities to start OTAs and lifting,” Palmer said. “It gives you a chance to sit back and realize what’s important. … Hopefully people can figure out what they want to be better at; it’s a great opportunity for them.”

The NFL is still conducting offseason business—including the 2020 NFL Draft from April 23-25—albeit differently as a result of government-mandated social distancing and stay-at-home directives.

Two of Palmers’ former teams are making plenty of noise this offseason with the Cardinals trading for four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and the Bengals poised to select LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with the first-overall pick.

Palmer is confident in the rebuilding Cardinals, who went 5-10-1 last season under first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury and rookie quarterback Kyler Murray. Coupled with seemingly ageless wideout Larry Fitzgerald and running back Kenyan Drake on offense, the future looks bright for the Cards, according to Palmer.

“Offensively they’ve got what you need—they’ve got explosiveness, the wily old vet in Larry, pieces up front and a great young QB,” he said. “Defensively they have two of the best players in football in Patrick Peterson and Chandler Jones.

“Their biggest issue is getting out of their division, but they have the talent and the players to get it done.”
